In a bid to counter the effect of mega star Chiranjeevi’s electioneering for his party Praja Rajyam and that of Balakrishna , junior NTR and others for TDP, the ruling Congress is planning to rope in popular hero Mahesh Babu to campaign for it.
It is learnt that Mahesh Babu is not interested to join active politics immediately. Even his father super star Krishna is not ready to bring him into politics at this stage. They feel that entry into politics will have an impact on his film career.
According to party sources, Mahesh Babu will campaign for the ruling party only during the time of elections. Krishna has already declared his support to the Congress.
He also called upon his fans and Mahesh Babu’s fans to strive for victory of Congress in the State.
Another yesteryear heroine Kavitha is also planning to join the Congress shortly.
She hails from Narsapuram of West Godavari district. Actress Jayasudha will join the party at Gandhi Bhavan here tomorrow in the presence of PCC president D Srinivas and Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy
